Africa - Travel Expert
Why I love to travel
I can’t remember a time when we were not going somewhere or planning to go somewhere as a family. My parents are avid explorers and have instilled in me a passion for nature and a savvy “go for it” attitude. Hence the travel bug was sown in my early youth with frequent escapades around Africa, Europe and the Indian Ocean islands. Later-on at secondary school I decided a life in African conservation was for me and offered a brilliant way to combine my many hobbies into a profession. I did this by embarking on an exhilarating 10 year career in the world of safari during which I experienced many facets of conservation, guiding, lodge management and misadventure in Southern and East Africa.
